Croydon Link Masterplan

Consultation has concluded



The City of Charles Sturt is developing a Masterplan for the ‘Croydon Link’ between Port Road and Torrens Road in West Croydon.

The Croydon Link consists of Croydon Avenue, Garnet Street and Croydon Avenue Reserve. It plays an important role in providing walking, cycling and vehicular access to a range of destinations.

The project involves collaboration between Council, its consultant team and the local community, to create a vision for Croydon Link that will support the use and activity within the Croydon Link now and into the future.

How do you think walking and cycling connections could be improved in the area?


  • What’s working? What’s not?
  • How can Croydon Avenue Reserve be improved as a local destination?
  • What other local destinations should we be focusing on?


We welcome your ideas!

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
  • I want to have an assurance by council, DPTI and your consultants that Croydon Reserve will remain as it currently is, that is that the road is not to be reopened. Nor will Croydon Ave be made as a vehicular thoroughfare, where it gets connected to Days Rd right through to Garnet St, Port Rd. If you are trying to create a safer and healthier environment in our Charles Sturt council this would completely defeat the purpose.

    Thank you for your question Jacqui.

    There is no justification or support in Council’s strategic Transport or Open Space documents for the establishment of new links for motor vehicles through Croydon Avenue Reserve or across the Outer Harbor Railway Line.  Furthermore, a new vehicle link across the Outer Harbor Railway Line would almost certainly be opposed by the State Government Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, which is the owner and caretaker of the Outer Harbor Railway Corridor.

    Therefore, the Croydon Link Masterplan project team confirms that there is no proposal to establish new links for motor vehicles through Croydon Avenue Reserve or across the Outer Harbor Railway Line.  The Croydon Link Masterplan project does, however, aim to strengthen pedestrian and cycling links between Torrens Road and Port Road.

    I trust this answers your query.

  • Are council proposing motor vehicle access on Croydon ave all the way from Torrens road to Port road, creating a new crossing over the railway line?

    Hello Giulio

    Thank you for your question.

    There is no proposal to establish new motor vehicle access points through Croydon Avenue Reserve or across the Outer Harbor Railway Line.  This project aims to strengthen pedestrian and cycling links between Torrens Road and Port Road.

    I trust this has answered your query.

  • Hi I walk along the link between Dartmouth St and Port Road every morning early. I feel the footpath needs to be more constant in its surface, the step off from footpath to roads could be more consistent, there does not seem to be many cyclists when I walk, but there could be designated sides of the footpath for cyclists. I don't see any public rubbish bins available along the walk. I do notice Graffiti on street poles that doesn't seem to get reported.

    Hello Dave

    Thank you for your comments regarding the Croydon Link Masterplan.

    These are the types of things we are looking at through this masterplan and encourage you to come along to the Place Check event this weekend and provide these and any other ideas you may have to help us formulate the Plan. We hope to see you there.  


  • I own a property and live on Croydon Avenue. How will this move affect residents of Croydon Avenue. I have a young family and don't want to expose them to more vehicle or pedestrian traffic. Will our home be secure?

    KP asked almost 3 years ago

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Some of the key objectives of the Croydon Link Masterplan are to improve street amenity, traffic safety and access for pedestrians and cyclists.  If you are a resident of Croydon Avenue with a young family then these improvements may appeal to you.

    We encourage all residents to come along to the Place Check event this weekend and return the Feedback Forms so that they can have input into the development of the Masterplan.
